held today between hillary clinton and governor chris christie, 49% would vote for clinton, while 45 would vote for christie. >> hillary clinton if she wants to run will be the next president of the united states. the question is will she run? and she's attracting a new generation of people particularly women who are so excited about the prospects of having a woman president. we believe that she is the one. so as i said her before on the show, hilary if you are watching, run. >> michael: a lot of people were saying it. i think the excitement over the first woman president would be obviously multiplyied. but let's say she doesn't run, who would be the standard barer to that? >> you have to go out there and make your mark. and on that point i brought you a little something -- >> michael: is this older -- >> this is maker's mark classic. >> michael: okay. >> when i bout it at a liquor store this afternoon, the owner new the whole story, be it's not only a lesson for mitch mcconnell but for all people running, you have to know your brand. they had a perfectly good br

senators, what you hear is please follow the hillary clinton model this notion she came in and had star power and laid low and didn't do very much, same thing for barack obama in the u.s. senate. so the expectation, if not the mandate for liberal senators is follow this employed he will that says sit down and shut up. the encouraging thing about elizabeth warren is she is saying i'm going to play rules is i am here as a senator. i campaigned on these things. shies effectively say i go made promises to voters about what i would stand up for and the serious thing to do is to stand up for those things and fulfill those pledges when i'm in office. cenk: i think part of what that executive is saying is hales know your role. your roam as a democratic is to pretend to be progressive during the elections but once the election is over, your role is to work for us, the financial executives. secondly, the democrats are paid to shut up and the republicans paid to run wild. that's how we get the imbalance policy that we winds up getting not political results in terms of who wins, but policy results.

clinton? i will say that president bush after 9-11 sort of had cart blanch he controlled the house and the senate and the democrats were much more given to supporting his agenda following that crisis and attack on our nation. so is it really that unprecedented or does seem like over the last three administrations, it is okay as long as you give us, the republicans, what we want? >> it's not totally unprecedented. what's pretty clear is this particular congress, particularly coming after the last round of redistricting and with the rise of the tea party and the conservative branch of the republican party this is conservative with republicans pretty far to the right. democrats who frankly in many cases, particularly in the house are pretty far to the left. >> john: well, rick, it is true. it is nice to remember we do have democrats who are liberal in the house. is this another taste of the republican party doubling down on obstructionism? the policy that does not work for them in 2012? >> i don't think they know what else to do. look, we have such a weird dynamic now. elections today
